How do you know if your mattress is the cause of your discomfort? If you wake up each morning with tenderness in your hips, back or shoulders and find that after walking around or stretching out you stop hurting, it’s fair to say your mattress is probably contributing to your pain.
Choosing the right mattress for your body is one of the easiest ways to soothe this pain. Sleeping on a mattress not suited to your body can reinforce unnatural spinal alignment causing poor posture, straining muscles and pressure points. At SleepMaker, we take great pride in producing a wide variety of mattresses right here in Australia. Using our carefully selected mattress edit, we have divided the process of choosing your ideal bed into three easy edits. As someone with back pain, you might find you’re best suited with a mattress from our Performance Edit.
While you sleep your ligaments, spine and muscles should completely relax and restore themselves. During this important time your spine should be in neutral alignment, meaning your spine is level and doesn’t unnaturally curve too much.
It is also key that your whole body is supported rather than your weight pooling on specific points like your hip and shoulder joints. Therefore it goes without saying, your sleeping positions affect your back pain too.
At SleepMaker, we care about helping you get the best sleep possible. If you suffer from long term back pain, it is important to talk to your medical professional. Additionally, a supportive mattress is key to preventing back pain.
The Miracoil back care mattress by SleepMaker features the continuous coil design, for consistent, even body support throughout the night. By investing in a SleepMaker mattress, you are making an investment into your long term health and well-being.
